I''m in the process of replacing the original rubrail on my Morgan 28 Out Island, a 1976 version.

I''ve only been able to find one source for the rubrail, and have been quoted a price of $14 per foot, and I''ll need somewhere around 70 feet to redo the entire boat....OUCH!

Two questions: Does anyone know and alternative source for such rubrail, which admittedly is rather unusually shaped, AND

Does anyone have any tips to ensure the project''s success?

I have attached the e-mail address and Web page address of the owner of a 33 OI who has tackled the project of replacing the rubrail, and from my conversations with him it seams to have been quite successful.

I would be interested in how you end up doing the job, as I will be attempting it next winter.

Best of luck

Thomas S. : I''m not sure exactly what you did, nor if it was on a Morgan 28 IO. The rubrail on my boat serves as a "jacket" of sorts over the seam where the top deck joins the hull.

Do you also have a Morgan 28 IO?

If so, what''s your telephone number, or email address? I''d like to discuss the project in more detail with you.

Thanks.

I see the thread is old, but if this is seen, can you tell me what you ended up doing on your 76. I have a 73 morgan and would like to see what else is going on out there.
